T.E. Lawrence: Writings, Correspondence, Biographies & Literature

First editions of works by Lawrence; fine-press, limited-edition publications by the Whittington Press, the Fleece Press, and the Castle Hill Press; and books from the libraries of Jeremy Wilson, Peter Enders, and Peter Danby-Smith. Comprising 43 items, this catalogue covers a broad range of items related to Lawrence, from the important Castle Hill Press parallel text edition of Seven Pillars of Wisdom (the 1922 and 1926 texts) and the limited edition of portraits drawn for Seven Pillars by Eric Kennington, via the lesser-known writings of Lawrence (including his work on rescue boats for the RAF) and his defining correspondence with Charlotte and Bernard Shaw, to very affordable but historically important literature on Lawrence’s reputation and afterlife.

Joseph Banks: A Lincolnshire Botanist in Australia

250 years ago Captain James Cook and his crew – among them the Lincolnshire botanist Joseph Banks – became the first Europeans to set foot on the eastern coast of Australia. Joseph Banks’ botanical discoveries – some 1,300 previously unknown botanical species – revolutionised European understanding of natural history. The ten prints presented in this catalogue show the rich foliage, colourful flowers, and diverse species that Banks discovered as the Endeavour traversed the globe. * * * To see the online exhibition, our video gallery talks, and access further resources on Joseph Banks and his Florilegium, please visit our website:
